I find it harder to blog when I haven't blogged in a while. Life has just been so, so busy. I have not had any kind of consistency with nutrition or workouts due to kids being sick, DH traveling, so many after school activities and appointments,... Read more

DH is doing well with his recovery, but it will be a while before our house is back to normal. He is still in a cast and will have his stitches removed next Friday. I hope we will then know more about physical therapy and he can start putting so... Read more

Yesterday and today were very mixed in terms of accomplishments/progress and setbacks. My mood was terrible yesterday. My weight was up a little, but so was my muscle %. I ate way over my calorie range the last two days, which wasn't great. I am... Read more
